RIM Confirms $199 PlayBook Deal

RIM has confirmed via Twitter that the price of the BlackBerry PlayBook will be reduced to just $199 for the holidays. The tablet isn’t the most popular, but at the under-$200 sweet spot, could make a great gift for your suit-wearing loved one. The PlayBook is almost identical in size to the similarly priced Kindle Fire, but runs RIM’s own QNX-based OS, so you’ll won’t have access to either major app store—although the next iteration of the OS will feature an “Android Player” to run Android apps (almost) natively.
